Collaboration over Competition
We have always believed in collaboration over competition. Time and time again, we've collaborated with other beekeepers, skincare artisans and food producers to the betterment of us all.
No idea is too small or endeavour too big, so please, reach out.
Our favourite collaboration started with the small idea of simply showcasing local farmers, but blossomed into a sold-out gala event in a stunning vineyard at sunset. KIN Vineyards opened their winery for Bee Savvy Honey to host the Dine Among the Vines, Party Under the Stars event, Thursday, Sept. 26, 2019. Small-scale producers throughout the Ottawa Valley came together to create a delicious seven-course meal for guests under the open tent. It was truly a farm-to-table style event for 150 guests.
Beekeepers and Makers
Bee Savvy Honey is a young company, located in the town of Arnprior, nestled between the Madawaska and Ottawa Rivers in Eastern Ontario. Bee Savvy specializes in creating unique infused honeys that inspire our fellow foodies, and incredibly effective and healthy, natural body moisturizers.
We are beekeepers and the makers of all our products. We pride ourselves on being involved in every step of the creative process, from working with our bees while harvesting our quality honey and beeswax, to hand pouring each body balm and lotion bar.
Matthew has a work history in both marketing and journalism, but always felt more at home in the outdoors than in an office. After a battle with cancer in his early 30s, Matthew decided that a career change towards more holistic “work” was needed. He began a beekeeping mentorship program with an Ottawa beekeeper and fell in love with the work immediately. In 2015 Bee Savvy Honey was born.
Alicia has always felt a need to express herself creatively. Through managing Bee Savvy’s social media accounts, attending vendor shows, creating the body-care and assisting in the bee yard during harvest, Bee Savvy has provided her a wonderful sense of fulfillment. When she’s not brainstorming the next expansion of Bee Savvy’s top quality goods, Alicia is the Executive Assistant to MacOdrum Library’s Head Librarian at Carleton University.
